his very short-lived series followed the Seated Liberty design of the era. Twenty Cent Pieces were struck from 1875 to 1878 with 1877 and 1878 being rare proof-only Twenty Cent Pieces. Philadelphia, Carson City and the San Francisco Mint all struck Twenty Cent Pieces.
The 1876-CC is the ‘key’ to a complete Twenty Cent Piece collection. 10,000 coins were struck but almost all were melted at the Carson City Mint. Today, a decent example of this rare Twenty Cent Piece easily fetches $100,000!
Richly toned silver-gray surfaces with a slate-blue tint and a touch of gold when tilted under a lamp.
A pleasing problem-free example of this popular Carson City issue.
Very flashy mostly white luster with a touch of mainly peripheral toning. The strike is razor sharp!
Well struck with rich satiny mint luster that shows a splash of golden-green toning.
Blast white luster glistens with an intense satiny finish. Surfaces are ideal and nearly flawless. The strike is razor-sharp and the eye appeal is first-rate. Only 3 coins have graded finer at NGC.
Beautiful original surfaces with a dusting of champagne toning and a touch of turquoise and gold hue. A scarce proof-only issue. Housed in an early PCGS holder.
